OSAAT #127 Back to school

Well what a strange week i have had this week.... Its one of those weeks that you need to give yourself a little shake and a kick up the bum...   The more i have tried to do the less i have achieved :O(   I have a pile of DT  cards that i will complete this week...   A few big decisions have been made this week so i suppose thats a start :O)  
Its been a week tinged with sadness.. one of my DT  girls lost her husband this week after a very very short illness..  I can honestly say that i feel as though it has broken my heart... I cannot imagine how the family must be feeling... Things like this always make me realise to make the most of every day... You never know what the next chapter of your life may bring.
All my boys are a year older ! Well its Lukes 17th birthday on tuesday. But Dwight is 22 my baby Ben is 13. Even my grandson Taylor turned 1 this year !!! Time truly does fly by

Talking of time flying.....its Sunday again... So another One Stitch At A Time challenge.. As theres only 2.5 weeks left here in UK ... I wanted a back to school challenge. So thats our theme...

Pop to the challenge blog to see all details and to attatch your entry.

Heres my creation for this week...
I started with a blank pencil crayon tube. I bought it when Wilkinsons had a sale, so it cost 25p. I knew it would come in handy
I worked with Oases' (Panda Bear Designs) Education station papers..... I LOVE  them !!!
So did Ben ... who asked me to make him a pocket timetable that matched !! So heres Bens' pencil crayon box and his pocket timetable.

Pop to the challenge blog to see all the DTs fantastic creations. Theres cards, notebooks and even full decorated stationary kits !!
Then share your own creations with us

I know what you mean about your heart breaking, I can honestly say that it has affected me very much, especially the shock of how quick it all was :(

Anyhoo, just popping by to say Hi and I love your bright project. Thank you so much for the idea for mine :)

Lots of love Mandy xxx
